think you have to look across all technologies that we pursue and recognize that the significant technological challenges that have been associated with that program and really, i think, in the time frame that we've had to develop these systems, i think we've -- the technological part of this defense has donna mazing things in that time frame to be able to produce the caments that are there now. and i'm confident they're going to produce the result you're asking about in the near future. as far as the overall, how you would put a p.a.a. in europe, i came from europe in my last position. and again, it goes back to a discussion for me about europe versus the size and the immensity and vastness of this region, a region even the pacific region in the indopacific and trying to apply that exact model to a defense of this area, i think that would be a stretch for me. however, i think there are opportunities as we look at our alliances, as we look at our growing partnerships, as we look at multilateral organizations who are investing in ballistic missile defense capabilities of their own

. we talked about technology and data sharing. there are productivity, issues that are significant. >> i want to touch on some other hot-button topics we have not discussed as much. capital gains, dividends. current laws, they go back up. dividends treated as ordinary income. capital gains goes back up to 20%. how much revenue are we talking about? if those become bargaining chips, how much are we giving up? >> under current law, the capital gains rate is scheduled to go to 20%. we are actually talking 23.8%. dividends are scheduled to go to ordinary rates. you need the 3.8% for people who have higher incomes. significant increases in both are scheduled. as you think about the fiscal cliff and what is coming, one of the few places you can see people responding to it is in their behavior around capital gains and dividends. companies are moving up to how, shareholders take a vintage of a lower rate. i expect you will see more investors realize lower capital gains in order to get lower rates. there is clearly money there. there is clearly money that has interesting, distributional cha

innovation peace, technology licensing, is create the ability for schools at all levels to teach kids things that local employers need to be employed. then while they are there, teach them something about shakespeare and about the constitution and make them good citizens and engaged people. but give them skills that allow them to put themselves in the marketplace of the future. >> which is why community colleges have been such an engine for economic growth and prosperity in america. but we are cutting back on community colleges now. >> one of the mistakes we make when we talk about the full range of this, which is spending on research and development, support of universities, all these things, is that more money is better. if a business person says less money is better, more efficient you allocate your resources, the more you get from your research dollars, the better you do. today is far cheaper to start a business than it used to be in this country, because all the tools that you used to have to purchase yourself are not readily available on the web. it has taken the cost of innovat

do things smarter, more efficiently, and using the technology and resources we have to make things more efficient and cost-effective for government. we reduced by $5 billion by passing a law that says we could not pass what was not funded. ours was not challenged in court, fortunately. we are looking at more pension reform. we have seven pension systems in the state. they are operated by different pension boards that have different rules, different structures, looking at the potential of having them under one board that monitors all of the pensions so you have across the board unanimously. one of the things we have done in the state of oklahoma is our transportation secretary, we took down a 9000-foot bridge in oklahoma city. over 1900 steel beams were repurposed and recycled for local counties to get rid of structurally deficient bridges. we will go from the bottom to the top in terms of creating that infrastructure. we are literally recycling and saving millions of dollars by something that would have just been thrown out. it is the only project like that of its kind in the count

cause which i have been proud to champion and that is stem education, science, technology, engineering and math, these are critical educational fields that we need to make sure our young students are not only exposed to, but have the tools to excel and compete in the global marketplace. this means giving these core areas extra attention and i would like to highlight the great work and dedication that dr. lopez has given. as a principal, dr. lopez is ahead of the curve in advancing stem education. among his students and a model for students around the country. he has helped me greatly and taken on the task of heading up my educational advisory board and i'm grateful. in closing, it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to represent the people of the 10th congressional district. i have never forgotten where i came from and what i came here to accomplish and the importance of governing for the people. and while i'll miss many things, mr. speaker, i will miss many friends i have made on both sides of the aisle and my dedicated and talented staff, some of which are her
